Historical Graph for System Stats

This topic is for 11.4.1 -- see ASOC-87727 for details. Issue is we need a new CSH topic, but we cannot get the new topic URL until after we publish the topic to NetWitness Link. So, for 11.4, this is a duplicate topic. We can use the URL to update the mapping files: this will allow the team to test and make sure the help link works.

First posted topic here: DOC-110201. Then, somehow, seems to have been posted again here: https://community.rsa.com/docs/DOC-110188 --> I deleted this topic.

Note: The information in this topic applies to NetWitness Version 11.4.1 and later.

Historical system statistics are available for each event source.

To access the Historical Graph for the System Stats:

  1. Go to netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > Event Sources.

    The Event Sources view is displayed.

  2. Click the Manage tab.

    The Event Sources Manage tab is displayed.

  3. In the Historical Graph column, select the view chart icon (netwitness_histgraph.png) for any listed event source.

    The Historical graph for the selected event source is displayed. The figure displays event source activity.



You can customize the graph view as required. The table lists the various parameters used to customize the historical graph view.
